Find the solution of the exponential equation:

4^8x = 16^x+8

I have tried starting by using exponent laws and breaking the equation down into:

4^8x= 16^x * 16^8

...but now I'm stuck. I've been looking at this problem so long and tried multiple angles and I feel like I'm over thinking it. Is this on the right track? What would my next step be?
